Moore Named Student of the Week
February 23, 2012By Donald Clark of Greene Central High School
Freshman Dekevion Moore has been named the Greene Central Student of the Week for the first week in February.
Moore is currently taking English 9, Algebra I, Weightlifting, Automotive Technology, and Earth Science. He is also the quarterback on the junior varsity football team.
“Dekevion is always positive, focused, and he works to his full potential. He consistently tries to help others understand the material,” said Algebra I teacher Carrie Miller.
“Weightlifting is my favorite class. It gives me a physical challenge. I want to get stronger,” said Moore.
“Dekevion has been an outstanding cadet by demonstrating
leadership, motivation, selfless service, and respect. He has set the standards for uniform wear in JROTC,” said JROTC instructor Dennis Bottoms.
In his free time, Moore likes to hunt. He spends most of the day outside, rather than indoors.
“It feels like freedom to me,” he commented.
“Dekevion is a really hard worker. He’s serious about his work and he does things right,” said Weightlifting teacher Kenneth Grantham.
“I am very good at math, although it’s not my favorite subject. I’m only good at it when I have to be,” said Moore.
Moore mentioned that he has habitual study habits, and that’s how he maintains good grades.
“I look over my materials at least ten or fifteen minutes every night,” Moore said.
“Dekevion is a fine example of how students should conduct themselves. He is well-mannered and well-dressed young man that exemplifies and embodies the characteristics of a success. His future is bright; you can't help but see it!” said English teacher Kim Williams.
“Dekevion is a fabulous kid, in and out of the classroom. He’s a model student. He really rocks,” said Miller.
Moore also said he thinks it’s a good idea for sports teams to check the students’ grades.
“Football pushes me to do better in school. If you’re not doing good in school, you aren’t going to play. It’s like a mental challenge for me,” he said.
“Dekevion was a strong second-string quarterback for our jayvee football team this season. I hope to see him back next year,” said Grantham.
“To be a good student, it’s important to listen and try your best in every subject,” Moore recommended.
After finishing his high school career at Greene Central, Moore plans to study Engineering for four years at North Carolina State University.
Moore is the son of Felicia Moore of Ormondsville.
